. Carl Woese (1928-2012) was an American scientist who was mainly interested in microorganisms – organisms so small that they can only be seen with a microscope. In particular, Woese sought to organize the known species of microorganisms, according to their relatedness, into a classification scheme. When he started, he felt that the classification schemes in use at the time were based on highly questionable assumptions, and quite possibly were complete rubbish. Therefore, he worked out a new method for classifying organisms. Research his activities on the internet, and then address issues (a), (b) and (c), that are given below, and cite your source(s).

  • (a) Briefly describe Woese’s new method for classifying microorganisms. Please note that you don’t need to get into all of the details, such as the virtues of the particular “subunit” he focused on. Instead, I’m looking for you to identify the molecule that Woese analyzed and the basic logic of his approach.
  • (b) Name one of Woese’s most important findings.
  • (c) Describe one way that this relates to this week’s lesson.
  • Don’t forget to cite your source or sources.

Watch Dr. Cox’s video on the “Chemicals of Life” in the “Instructor Insights” area of Week 2. Then, address issues (a) and (b).

Read at least one of the two articles about Lokiarcheum (Yong, 2015; Zimmer, 2015). Both articles describe recently discovered evidence about a previously unknown organism. Address issues (a), (b) and (c), that are given below, and cite your source(s)

  • (a) Describe the evidence which suggests that Lokiarchaeum may be a “transitional form” between archaea and eukarya.
  • (b) Describe one way that this relates to this week’s lesson.
  • Cite whichever article you use. If you use both, cite them both. There’s no particular reason why you should need any other source, but if you do use any other source, you must cite it, too.
